Oh packing, how I’ve not missed thee. It’s just two years since last we met. There’s nothing quite like moving house to give your whole life a shake-up. Weekends and evenings are no longer yours to laze around in. Instead there are endless glass things to wrap in newspaper, boxes to seal, box tape to mangle by getting it stuck on itself and endless towels to dirty by dragging the heavy, sealed and probably over-filled boxes from room to room until you decide which room is the designated ‘storage room’, until the panicky final days when the whole HOUSE is a storage area, and you’ve forgotten what it’s like to traipse down the passage without tripping over something cardboardy and pointy cornered. Or maybe that’s just how I do it.
With less than three weeks to go to our big move, that’s what life’s been like lately. But of course this past week we did a little more than that, especially as I had an ‘Awesome Award’ to celebrate, from my first month at the amazing place I now work – no box-packing pics below, I promise…
Monday, 10 November 2014: Friendly hot drinks at Mugg & Bean, Paddocks
Friday, 7 November 2014: Delicious tastes and sights at #Mobile360, at the V&A Clocktower
Saturday, 8 November 2014: Milnerton dog show, dinner on top of the Ritz, Sea Point
Sunday, 9 November 2014: Tough packing decisions and packing celebration drinks
And with that we’re already at a quarter to Friday again, that much closer to the next big box-packing session. Joy 😉 (See? I may have mentioned packing and posted photos related to packing, but not a single photo of boxes did you see! Yay, me).
